LE MOULIN, France

The restoration of the house progresses at a low pace, due to the fact that good artisans, in this region of France, are very busy as they work for many clients so the progress on site is by stages and sequential.

The roof of the house was completed and looks great, the main trussed structure is pegged, following good carpentry traditions. The external trusses are made of Green Oak and the rest of the carpentry was made with Douglas Pine.

The inclusion of a stair tower resolved the circulation. It was placed where traces of the original stairs were and adds a strong vertical accent to the house.

The North facade was restored during last June and shows how the house is finally going to look like.
